Beautiful Day

IMG_2777

This beautiful day,
Even more beautiful,
This bride, my wife,
Refreshing, this day,
Even more refreshing
The downpours, this rain,
Sending showers of blessings,
Sealing our day
With overflowing abundance
Of fresh scented love,
Marital fulfilment,
And unspeakable joy;
We found each other,
We found love;

And, the bridegroom
Smiles from his heart,
Looks towards the heavens,
As it rains its tender drops,
He smiles again,
Knowing he has found his soul mate,
His sweet gentle soul mate,
On this beautiful day.

To be married is not a willy-nilly decision made on the whims of emotions. It’s a decision which should be made on the bedrocks of unflinching commitment, unconditional love and unreserved friendship.

Daily Prompt: Willy-nilly

Season of Hope: I Will Bloom

IMG_2609

So I will stand
Despite the trying times
So I will bloom
Despite the pouring rain
So I will sway
To the rhythm of the wind
So I will shine
When the sun is out
When the rain is gone
When the wind is still
No matter the rage of the rain
I will bloom

Pitter-patter!
So much rain!
Splash! Splash!
Wellies in the rain!
Swoosh! Swoosh!
Wipers wiping!
Umbrella! Raincoat!
Another rainy day!
It’s June! It’s summer!
But sunny rays are gone!
Manchester?
Rainchester!

Daily Prompt: Sunny

It Only Takes One Tiny Seed

Sow in the morning, sow at night, sow at noon, sow all the time
Scatter your seeds in many ventures, scatter them far and near
Don’t look at the clouds, or the rains; if you do, you won’t move
Every minute is always the right time, to take those decision and sow
Some may wither or eaten by birds, others may flourish at every branch
You never know which seeds would detonate and explode with goodness,
In abundance, in blessings, in great harvests, in opportunities of a lifetime
That would catapult your life into a new zone or curve you cannot recover from
And all your dreams, aspirations and fairytale wishes would come true
It only takes one seed that is sown, at the right place, at the right time,
It only takes one tiny seed that is sown for your dreams to come true
But if you don’t scatter and keep sowing, how would this even happen?

Daily Prompt: Detonate

Teardrops

Teardrops from the skies
Dark clouds in loud rumblings
And creation gratifies
In a sloppy slushy caresses
Teardrops from the sky
Falling, kissing the ground
An ordinary lad passing by
To his lass, homeward bound

Daily Prompt: Ordinary

A Jolly Merry Feast Ruined

img_1932

A perfect day for picnic
The table is set
Friends are chatty
The music is groovy
Midday is dawning

Suddenly,

You loudly growl and grumble
In deafening thundering rumble
They look up to behold
Your cloudy face once sunlit and sunny
Turning dark, grey and stormy
Displaying swift sparks of lightning
Like the king of the sky, you don’t hesitate
As you release your drenching showers
They scamper and scurry for covers
Hurdled under some makeshift shade
They stand or sit but stare and ponder-

A jolly merry feast, ruined

Daily Prompt: Hesitate, Scamper

Dancing in the rain…

image

Some Asian children playing in the rain.

Looking at this picture, it reminded me of how as a child, I used to play in the rain with my friends. We ran up and down the little street in shorts and dresses; we jumped, screamed, danced, played, splashed and did whatever silly thing that came to our minds. I know many of us who were born in the 70s and 80s will relate to this and will agree with me that it was fun!
